for him to return to washington. >> reporter: definitely. we expect that he will be heading back to washington, d.c. he was supposed to be here through the new year. i will tell you nothing is official on the schedule that he's definitely going back to d.c., but the sense you get from the white house is that it's more an issue of when and not if. if there is a bill that goes through the senate, the president will have to be there in order to perhaps twist some arms and certainly the optics are important. if we go over the fiscal cliff, suzanne, you've covered the white house. you know the president wouldn't be in hawaii while that happens. >> hopefully you can stay in hawaii, and but you knife to come back with him. we'll see. >> reporter: i think i'd be coming back. >> that's a shame. >>> it's a white christmas for some, and in some places it might be a problem. we're going to check the holiday forecast up next. >>> it's going to be a white and wild christmas in some places. this is stevens pass, washington. a stretch of highway he 2 was impassable because of heavy snow and wind
